How can I compete?

Registration Is Full! – Position is nine tense of the law!

Update May 12: Cold Feats & Corn Flix : Although registration for both Punniest of Show and Punslingers is full, as expected, we’ve flushed out a few pairs of cold feet and conflicted schedules. A number of contestants have dropped off both of our confirmed lists and the “stand-bys” are moving up. In fact, we have an even 32 pre-registered in Punniest of Show with NOBODY on that waiting list. If you have the urge and the nerve there’s still a full week before you’ll be expected to prove your mettle to claim that medal. Feel lucky, punk! Well, do you? Sign up here. You might be surprised!  

Line Forms At the End

Much to our delight and amazement all 32 contestant positions for both Punniest of Show and Punslingers filled up within the first 24 hours of opening the registration page on Sunday, April 15th as scheduled (actual opening was 3 pm.) If this took you by surprise, all hope may not be lost since we usually have about a 20% drop-off/no show rate before the contest.  We recommend you fill out the on-line form so you will be added to the stand-by names and show up at 11 to Noon and sign-in just in case! You will be informed by email privately when/if you move up to lucky competitor status from the stand-by list. 

We have many other ways you can participate in fun and foolishness with us this year. PunMeister, Gary Hallock hosts warm-up gatherings for contestants each Friday prior to the contest. We also have a Facebook group where you can follow announcements and comment. Beyond that you can subscribe to email lists at and where you can banter, volley and thrust your puns upon others daily.
